We spent absolutely great holidays in Casa Heidi in Bran. And we want to thank Dinu for all his efforts with explaining everything to us in advance, and also Mircea who was very friendly and helpful during our stay. So we really felt welcome on our first visit to Romania. The marvellous house and the fantastic landscape - extraordinary. The house was just as described by Dinu. Everything practical, clean and cosy; the special architecture, the old wedding chests and the artistic photographs give the casa a very individual atmosphere. We felt immediately „at home“. The weather was mainly very nice, so we spent most time on the terrace – a gorgeous idea is the moveable table on rolls with an integrated parasol. The one day we had to eat and sit indoors in the evening was really cosy. In the kitchen we found everything to cook a nice meal, and everything was practical.
The bedrooms were lovely decorated with light colours and very comfortable mattresses. We were 5 persons – two couples and a single person – and enjoyed the luxury of all bedrooms having their private bathroom.
And then the quietness. No cars or other noise. It was just the little brook which borders the garden we would sometimes hear with a gentle, soothing splashing. It was a pity that we stayed for just one week, so we wanted to see a lot of this wonderful part of the world, and couldn’t enjoy the terrace and the balcony as much as we would have liked.
The casa is not too far from the village centre of Bran – you can walk there within about 15 minutes, but far enough from it as not to be bothered by the tourists visiting Bran castle – which we found also quite interesting. We enjoyed being in Bran, so we had supermarkets and restaurants nearby.
And apart from the wonderful house we were fascinated by the gorgeous countryside. You could just sit there and admire the scenery! Dinu supplied us with a lot of helpful information. This made it easy for us to find interesting places: lovely small towns (we’ve never seen this special and impressing kind of churches and castles before), nice walks – from easy to more demanding. We liked the rural area; life seemed to be less hectic and time even appeared to have stood still a bit.
And either Mircea or Dinu could be contacted at any time. So we always felt to be in really good hands. This was very reassuring, although we didn’t really need it, as everything worked just smoothly.
We'd really like to come again! Once more: Thanks a lot, Dinu!!!
